  • The diocotron spectrum for a simplified model of Malmberg-Penning traps that includes compression effects due to end curvature is investigated herein. Performing an initial value treatment, we find that there is a class of length profiles for which the linearized eigenvalue equation of the model can be integrated in quadratures (integrable case). In this case, there is only algebraic growth when the effective angular frequency has a maximum (hollow profile) or a minimum, and the model is mathematically equivalent to the zero curvature (2D Euler) case. Furthermore, we study profiles that are slightly different from the integrable one (the differencemore » being characterized by a small parameter, {epsilon}), finding that the frequency of the unstable l = 1 mode scales as {epsilon} 2/3. Analytical calculations and numerical simulations are found in remarkable agreement.« less
  • Typically, structures with significant non-linear supports are analyzed using either time-history algorithms or response spectrum enveloping techniques, with multiple stiffness values to represent the non-linear supports. However, there are problems associated with these methods: (1) time-history analyses require considerable computer time, and, more importantly, the generated response files can become too large; (2) linear response spectrum analyses, when used to envelop the non-linear solution, are excessively conservative. This paper presents an equivalent linear response spectrum methodology to analyze structural systems with a uni-directional support. The structure is free to move in one direction, and restricted with a support stiffness inmore » the diametrically opposed direction. The mathematical formulas for this application are developed and presented. The results using this methodology are compared with actual results from corresponding time-history non-linear structural analyses. These comparisons, performed for the one-mass structural system, show that the equivalent linear response spectrum method closely approximates the time-history results.« less
  • The data analysis program, SPECTRUM, is used for fusion, visualization, and classification of multi-spectral imagery. The raw data used in this study is Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) 7-channel imagery, with 8 bits of dynamic range per channel. To facilitate data transmission and storage, a compression algorithm is proposed based on spatial wavelet transform coding and KLT decomposition of interchannel spectral vectors, followed by adaptive optimal multiband scalar quantization. The performance of SPECTRUM clustering and visualization is evaluated on compressed multispectral data. 8-bit visualizations of 56-bit data show little visible distortion at 50:1 compression and graceful degradation at higher compression ratios.more » Two TM images were processed in this experiment: a 1024 x 1024-pixel scene of the region surrounding the Chernobyl power plant, taken a few months before the reactor malfunction, and a 2048 x 2048 image of Moscow and surrounding countryside.« less
  • The effects of compression ratio on the history of the fuel-burning process was investigated in a single-cylinder direct-injection diesel engine. Two compression ratios of 21.4 and 18.5 were studied by using two wide and shallow bowls. The engine was operated at different speeds and overall air-fuel ratios, but with constant start-of-combustion timing at top dead center. The measured cylinder pressure was used to derive fuel-burning rate. At all conditions, the low-compression-ratio bowl had a larger mass of premixed-burned fuel and a higher peak specific fuel-burning rate. The fuel-burning rate in the diffusion-controlled phase of combustion decreased with decreasing compression ratio.more » The resulting combustion duration became longer at reduced compression ratio, and the difference could be as large as 14 crank-angle degrees. For the engine conditions examined in this study, the mass of fuel present in the combustion chamber at ignition appears to be the dominant parameter determining the mass of premixed-burned fuel. The mass of premixed-burned fuel is also expected to be influenced by the spray development during the ignition-delay period. However, the effects cannot be determined in this study.« less
  • Combustion studies on both ethyl and methyl esters of various plant oils were carried out using the same engine for all the tests so that comparative studies could be achieved. Twelve esters were tested and the pertinent data was recorded. Some of the more important results are published in this paper to serve as a comparative guide to the study of plant oil esters as fuel. Bruwer et. al. (1980) suggested the use of plant oil esters to prevent injector coking in modern compression ignition engines. Very little information is available on the long term effects of such ester use.more » Cyclic endurance tests have been carried out on Perkins engines running on ethyl esters of sunflower oil. The exciting results of this work are reported, with specific reference to one tractor engine which has recorded more than 1 300 trouble free hours. 3 tables.« less
